Understanding gambling addiction and problem gambling

Gambling addiction, also known as compulsive gambling, is a type of impulse-control disorder. Compulsive gamblers can’t control the impulse to gamble, even when they know their gambling is hurting themselves or their loved ones. Gambling is all they can think about and all they want to do, no matter the consequences. Compulsive gamblers keep gambling whether they’re up or down, broke or flush, happy or depressed. Even when they know the odds are against them, even when they can’t afford to lose, people with a gambling addiction can’t “stay off the bet.”

Gamblers can have a problem, however, without being totally out of control. Problem gambling is any gambling behavior that disrupts your life. If you’re preoccupied with gambling, spending more and more time and money on it, chasing losses, or gambling despite serious consequences, you have a gambling problem.

Signs and symptoms of problem gambling

Gambling addiction is sometimes referred to as the "hidden illness" because there are no obvious physical signs or symptoms like there are in drug or alcohol addiction. Problem gamblers typically deny or minimize the problem. They also go to great lengths to hide their gambling. For example, problem gamblers often withdraw from their loved ones, sneak around, and lie about where they’ve been and what they’ve been up to.
Nothing is impossible in this world..
if i felt that i am addicted about it den i
would concentrate on my studies n my loving family..
I just ignore my computer every time I get bored and shift to some things that don't used computer. It's my way to prevent myself to play online casino.
Nohow. As for me, the playing heat is the most funny part about all these gambling stuff. If you feel the excitement - you`re already addicted. If not - go and entertain somehow else, because you`re boring. Wasting money while getting bored - what could be more depressing? :)
Just find a girlfriend and bang her all night, Its better than playing online games. You will not need to login at all. :p
you keep a bank of every ticket...and bets...that's how you can keep it under control ;)
Set yourself a limit then stick to it! I know its a cliche but never gamble more than you can afford to lose, this is golden rule No1 imo
well...first step is to keep a balance to your account and try to not run over your limit funds....second keep track to every win and lose and maybe try to have another hobby than gambling
I never gamble on casino, poker, etc. online. This is a machinery to make people loose money. On the other hand I see a good opportinuty to earn money betting on sport. A lot I rely on statistics and a betting system, using programs created by myself. I bet 200$ per month and I won 2 times in 6 months (august 2011, december 2011): 3,400 and 4,500. I'd rather start from 10,000 and just to double it, but I do not have this money... :(

Is a nice topic...
Welll... I have never come across this situation.. But in future life, if ever i happened,
I will keep away such thing from myself and avoid badly..
I can never give up this habit of playing casino games ever because I am very addicted to it and want to be forever because today's all of my property and prosperous because of casino games and my luck is very charming in online casino too.
I think that you need to be a person who is capable to understand the negative things that can happen if it goes beyond the limits. No one can, you may say..but some can.So, before playing this all day long..think twice..
I am not playing casino, I have seen there are lots of people have addicted to it. So I can’t believe they can survive from that life again without the support of a self rehabilitation team.
